Kazakhstan Economy - A brief view

How has the economy of Kazakhstan fared over a period of time?

After the collapse of Soviet Union Kazakhstan economy could not grow as fast as it set out for. Since 1991 Kazakhstan has formed policies around privatisation. During soviet times Kazakhstan mainly was agrarian economy and control was central but after the breakup from Soviet Union the focus has been to be market driven economy. Kazakhstan over the years is trying to become modern and efficient economy. But it has not resulted in quite a good shape. Widespread Corruption and other reasons have not allowed economy to reach its potential. In 2000s, Kazakhstan's economy grew sharply, aided by increased prices on world markets for Kazakhstan's leading exports—oil, metals and grain. GDP reached 9.6% in 2000 jumping from mere 1.7% in 1999. But this did not stay when oil prices started going down in 2014. In 2015 when World economic forum complied its Global Competitiveness ranking, Kazakhstan was ranked 50th out of 144 countries.

In recent times Kazakhstan is focusing heavily on state infrastructure development. Even though Kazakhstan is land locked country and far from any ocean but it knows that it can be a bridge between Asia and  Europe as it was in the past. So all the trade from Asia to Europe can happen through roads of Central Asia and Kazakhstan thus is investing heavily on infrastructure development. Even China and Russia including India is quite interested in having a good economic relations with Kazakhstan. Kazakhstan being major energy supplier in the world should grow fast even after slump in last few years. Life style and job creation is increasing in Kazakhstan. Almaty and Astana are two bustling cities of Kazakhstan attract lot of tourists and has become global business centers too.
